Formerly Thomas's Choral Society
Battersea Choral Society has become one of London’s most established choirs, over the past eighteen years.
Brought together by a love of singing, this friendly choir welcomes members who, in turn, approach rehearsals and concerts with
enthusiasm and commitment.
We rehearse every Tuesday evening in Battersea under the
expert direction of Sam Evans, and present three major concerts each year
in the beautiful setting of Holy Trinity Sloane Square.
Our summer concert, on 24 June, showed how the choir sang without their scores for the first time! A resounding success and thoroughly enjoyed by audience and choir members. We were incredibly lucky to be joined by such talented soloists and orchestra members.
3 weeks to go! Rehearsals are well under way for our Christmas Carol Concert which will take place on Tuesday 12 December 2017 - details below. And introducing our fabulous Readers - see below...
On Saturday 25 March 2017, Battersea Choral Society performed Dvorak's stunning cantata Stabat Mater at Holy Trinity Sloane Square, accompanied by a full orchestra and outstanding international soloists. Here's a taster from a Tuesday night rehearsal.
